Hi. My name is Sandy.
I have been on this weight loss roller coaster for WAY to long. It is time to stop the insanity and create a better and healthier life for myself. Today I start my new, healthier, and happier life!

I am learning to live life again. I had found recently that I have not really been living or enjoying life at all. I had been merely existing. So I decided that it is time to live again. I even threw a "New Beginnings" party to celebrate life and what is still to come! I have decided that I am still alive and life is worth living and celebrating!
My new theme song is:
"Tell Your Heart to Beat Again" By Danny Gokey

Now I am ready to take control of my weight and my health!
I am ready to live.
I am ready for my heart to beat again.

My Goals:
My goal is to learn to take better care of me and to learn to make myself a priority. I need to make some changes in order to live the happy, healthy life that I am hoping to live.

Stepping into my future!

CW: 240
GW: 140

So here's my plan:
I am going to log everything that goes into my mouth.
I am going to keep everything in the low end of my ranges (calorie, fat, cholesterol, etc.) 3 days a week. I am going to allow myself to go to the high end of my ranges 2 days a week. I am going to keep it in the middle the other 2 days.

I am going to blog my progress, feelings, health, anything that will help me keep track of where I start and where I am on my journey.

I am going to exercise and log it daily.

I am going to make a paperclip chain, 1 clip for every pound I lose... When I reach my goal I should have 102 paper clips strung together. For each clip representing a 10 pound loss... it will be a bigger paper clip and will represent a reward that I have earned.

Personal Information:
My name is Sandy. I am beginning a new lifestyle with me as the center of my focus. I have spent most of my life taking care of everyone else. Now it is time to take some time to work on me. I have big plans for me, and if I want to make them happen, I need to take care of me. So, here's to a new beginning!

Other Information:
I love to read and do crafts. . I just turned a bedroom in my house into a craft room and can't wait to start creating new things. My biggest project is going to be to create a new and improved me!!!
